We Rock! Has come up with an extra innovative design – a balance board with curved ends and more attention to safety thanks to the stepped and organic edge.
The curved extremities of the board allow you to balance on the convex side, an extra challenge! Who can keep their balance the longest?
The board with the stepped edge has a varnish finish and offers finger protection, the board with the organic edge is oiled and still offers an element of finger protection due to the tapered edge. The edge also makes the board more attractive. The organic sloping edge allows you to see the different layers of wood and gives the board a warm and natural appearance. The stepped edge in turn gives the board a more modern look.
Recommended for children from the age of 6. Children below that age should only use the board under the supervision of an adult.
The boards are available with and without felt. You can select your felt colour from the colours available.

Balance boards have been used in Waldorf education for over many years. They help children to develop both their balance and more of an awareness of their body and limbs. The value of a toy is not determined by what the toy can do, but by what a child can do with it. A rockerboard can become whatever you want it to be and can be integrated into children’s games effortlessly! This open-ended toy time and time again provides children with new opportunities and possibilities to play, often combined with other toys. This continuously stimulates their creativity. What is magic about the rockerboard is that you can be very active with it, but that it can also be a cosy place where the child relaxes, a place of their own. And, as they’ve been safety tested up to 150kg, adults can enjoy them too!
